“So this is accidental acceleration? I inadvertently hit gas pedal and I knew it?”
Yes, that is accidental acceleration. It was NOT “unintended acceleration”, when the car takes off on its own, w/o the operator activating the throttle.
“What are numbers for verified drivers swearing their foot was on brake and car accelerated? Quite low?”
I don’t have any data, but it seems to me that this forum gets/got a lot of complaints about it, especially after the Toyota case (and others) a few years ago. Everybody who had a car run away because they (most likely) stepped on accelerator instead of brake wanted a safety recall (and a new car) because of “unintended acceleration.” That’s the only reason I posted.
